Storyline

Her name is Dinah. In the Bible her life is only hinted at during a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons in the book of Genesis. Told through Dinah's eloquent voice, this sweeping miniseries reveals the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. Dinah's tale begins with the story of her mothers: Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that are to sustain her through a hard-working youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah tells us of the world of the red tent, the place where women were sequestered during their cycles of birthing, menses, and illness; of her initiations into the religious and sexual practices of her tribe; of Jacob's courtship with his four wives; of the mystery and wonder of caravans, farmers, shepherds, and slaves; of love and death in the city of Shechem; of her half-brother Joseph's rise in Egypt, and of course her ...

A stunning movie about Dinah the daughter of Jacob and Leah.
8 December 2014 | by smanning1-180-342368See all my reviews

The movie is loosely based on the life of Dinah. The movie was written for a twenty-first century audience; therefore, it has some historical inaccuracies. The movie is "loosely" based on the life of Dinah. If you are a Bible scholar you will notice that the story does not follow the story recorded in the Bible. The acting is noteworthy; the actors are equally matched in their abilities and do an adequate job. It was a pleasant surprise to see Debra Winger playing a gruff and a little scary grandmother. While Minnie Driver was on the screen she was a delight playing her role with great ease converting the weak eye Leah into wise beauty. The movie is well worth watching.
